CRACKDOWN: Missouri Dairy Raided By State Milk Board, Property Confiscated

Gailon wrote about raw milk today on the HealthWIRE. This is in conjunction with that post.

My initial reaction to this was, “Wait, we have a “Milk Board” in Missouri?”

Following that, I sat in stunned silence as I considered the idea of a state that feels it necessary to police the consumption of milk and cheese.

How do we consider ourselves free men if we cannot choose even the milk we drink?

Do I not have the right to raw milk?

Do I not have the right to eat cheese made with raw milk?

Do I not have the right to seek compensation if I’m harmed from this dairy’s products?

This is tyranny. Plain and simple.

A family farm, that hasn’t had a complaint in 30 years of operation, has 36 tons of property seized by some totalitarian moral busybodies sitting in an office in Jefferson City.

What has happened to our country?
